MURRAY, Utah – A four-footed felon made off with a rawhide bone from a Utah grocery store after ignoring the store manager's orders to drop the loot.
Surveillance video at Smith's Food & Drug in Murray, just south of Salt Lake City, shows the dog walking in the front door and giving a friendly sniff to a young girl at a checkout stand.
Then the dog headed straight for the pet food in Aisle 16, grabbed the $2.79 bone and made a break for the door, only to be confronted by store manager Roger Adamson.
"I looked at him. I said, 'Drop it!"' Adamson told KSL-TV in Salt Lake City on Wednesday.
"I decided I wanted to keep all my fingers, so I didn't try to take it from him. He looked at me, and I looked at him, and he ran for the door and away he went, right out the front door," Adamson said.
The suspect hasn't been seen since.
